Terrell Suggs -- Hit with Criminal Charges For Arizona Crash


NFL superstar Terrell Suggs has been formally charged with 2 misdemeanors stemming from his Arizona car crash earlier this month ... and if convicted, he could face jail time. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Suggs was arrested in a Scottsdale shopping center parking lot around 1 AM on March 4th ... after cops say he struck a wall and left the scene

Suggs disputed the "leaving the scene" part -- claiming he simply went to a Mexican restaurant that was open to call a friend to pick him up.  

Now, officials have formally charged Suggs with 2 misdemeanors -- driving with a suspended license and failure to notify after striking a fixture.  

If convicted of the suspended license charge, Suggs could face up to 6 months in jail. The failure to notify charge carries a lighter sentence ... up to 30 days in jail. 

Suggs was also cited for failure to control speed to avoid a collision -- which requires him to pay a small fine. 

Suggs is due in front of the judge in April.
